Here's one celebrity whose name you won't find on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars
: Kevin Federline
Despite recent rumors that Britney Spears
's ex would be getting ready to rumba on season 8 of the ABC dance competition, his rep tells Hollyscoop
that they are "not true."
Federline would have certainly made a competitive run on the show -- he began his career as a backup dancer and toured with his pop star ex in 2004.
's eight season begins in March, with the cast announcement coming soon.
